After Birth

These are the months they do not tell you in the books or the websites. The months of sleepiness nights or boiling the hot water to make a bottle of milk.

    Woooowwwwww!!! It is the greatest feeling ever.
    If was to journal everything that happened. I would probably have to write my own book. It was amazing, the labour (72 Hours), the birth, cutting of the cord and then holding my baby GLORY! it was sweet.
    I dont know how graphic, I can be but I will say during the pushing I almost pushed something out as I was very involved, I mean it was intense.

    Now I am just enjoying my baby BOY BOY BOY. Yes my Son, I always said I would not mind what I had and if I had a girl I would be OK which was a very true statement. I am really happy I had a son. He is real sweet and only crys when he needs food, changing or just tired : )

    Well what can I say:
    6 Months + after my wife has given birth she does not seem to be the same women. I understand it takes a while for women to return to them self however she is constantley eating more than her normal portions (pre pregancy). I mean she will eat the same portions as my self and I like my food (trust me). If I eat a large she would eat a large, If we have a large pizza she would eat very quick and look at my 5th slice and ask I want it (only 8 slices in a large pizza). I mean it makes me sick and I know if I communicate that to her it would really discourage and make her feel fat but I want to just say


    She seems to have lost her drive, I mean she was in business and prior to being pregnant and she was a very driven person. She constantley has dreams of being in business and helping me in business and joining my team (I run my own firm), but she is just lazy and complains when I have not got things done around the home.

    The home at times is messy and when I get home (i help around the house allot and with the baby) She has time away from our baby in the week (1 1/2 days) so this gives her “me time” however she does not utilise this time.

    She is alwas on facebook err! looking at peoples profiles, how is this going to benefit the family. Your in your late 20’s do something to helpl the house/home err!
    She is Full of excuses she makes statements like “I have a new baby, how can they expect me to do that” “I was busy with baby all day and the baby did not let me do anything” it is so anoying

    Anyway I am not expecting an answer as I know I just need to speak with her and let her know, how I feel and get to root of why she is behaving like this.

    A friend of mine is a professional like coach with a practice on Harley street London, pretty expensive. She had a session with her. My wife was all pumped and ready to give all her best and 2 week later she is back to the same old stuff. hmm

    Aa I am writting this I feel better as I am venting.

    HI Raj,

    Glad your able to vent your frustration. It can be hard at times to express how you fell with out causing offence during this periode as your wife is in a vulnerable position as her life and body has changed completley and she also is going through things her self that is hard for her to explain or express.

    Keep us updated on how things progress and if you managed to speak with her about how you feel.

    This is so real and funny. My wife read this blog and thought it was me who wrote it. I had to convince her that it was not me as she had 65% similarity to Raj’s wife.
    She did not speak with to me for the whole evening.
